They are a recurrent part of internet forums, but what purpose do flame wars serve?

Hmmm, I think the overcompensating ego option is one way to look at it, but I'm not sure that's it... personally I suspect that flame wars are merely a place for the participants to project their own hangups and strange interpretations of the world at/onto the reflecting mirror of an internet forum...!

I think people on forums getting to know each other in real life helps too... It stops the misunderstandings that can fuel flame wars
